"Boyle-Baise's (2002) conceptual framework of service [...] provides a useful lens for reconsidering the ‘service’ dimension of the service learning experience with a view to creating an inquiry-focused experience that, rather than being a ‘peek across borders’ (Boyle-Baise, 2002) to learn about others, might become a ‘borderland’ experience (Anzaldúa, 1987/1999) to learn about ‘self in relation with others’."

Announcements:

Viewing: Another Brick in the Wall

 

...traditional teaching assumes that all students should learn the same things in the same way at the same time. Such lessons make students' differences conspicuous and troublesome, and they virtually guarantee that the teacher and class will lose confidence in at least some students' capacity or willingness to learn. p. 174

 

Vygotsky viewed thought as the internalization of experiences in the social context.  Thus the 'location' of [...]learning and knowledge cannot be specified as being in individual students' heads, in the classroom culture at large, or in the relationship among students.  It is, in a word, sociocultural. p. 189
